Again, I think it is a slight contrast issue more than user error in this case.

The alerts show 3 different color/shades:
  • Old Alerts - Gray
  • New Unread since last login - Slightly darker gray (this is the contrast issue)
  • New Read since last login - White/Black (light or dark mode).
When you are going to the alerts page, it will display the number of "new unread" alerts. If you refresh once on this page, they will update to "new read" and the contrast will be clearer. Currently the contrast between "old" and "new unread" is very similar and hard to distinguish. The reason some will show as gray and others not on the 'new' list is usually that you viewed the item either by going directly to it (opening the thread) or were already on that page when the alert was added to the page.

Huh, interesting... What device/browser are you using?

I just tried switching to dark mode again and this is my alerts:

Everything save for the top 3 are supposedly unread. Clicking on the 25m ago one and returning still leaves it "unread." And in half an hour, all of them will be gray again. But yours seems to be working correctly. Guess it is user error after all.....

Edit: 5 minutes later and two have reverted to "unread"

K. But why are the alerts changing colors after 20ish minutes on their own on my system, but not on @BUFF's? I can clearly see the difference in colors between the photo he posted and what I posted. Why aren't his old read alerts showing up the same as mine?

Here is a screenshot of the "New unread" next to "old" (in light mode). 2 are the slightly darker gray and the rest are the normal gray.

Refreshing the page however makes the contrast much clearer to see:

Overall, I can understand that this isn't very clear or easy to see. That is why we are hoping to work on this feature and improve it down the line. However, at the moment I do not have a timeframe on when that will be improved.

Since color/colour coding doesn't seem to work for the needy...... Might I suggest animal figures.... Say for unread a horses head is used and for read/red a horses arse is used

You forgot the dead, beaten horse with the flies above it for the "old, read"

Alright, I think I'm finally figuring this out.

So:
Rectangle Font Parallel Screenshot Number


While I think I get it, I still don't follow why @BUFF's photo does not seem to show the same colors/changes as the rest of us. His "old, read" are not shaded at all. Unless I'm just missing it.

Went to post a pic.

It
Sew… I hit delete and I get this message

This is a known bug and we are already working on a fix. It should be rolling out with one of the next updates. In the meantime, the work around is to make the post, then edit it and you can remove the photo.

I know that isn't ideal, but hopefully the fix will take care of it soon enough.

If you are still not able to remove the photo for any reason, please self-report the post and include a note asking for the attached photo to be removed. The moderators will be able to remove the photo for you in that case.

Well, maybe in 15 minutes it will delete itself.

Or maybe it's just a different shade of gray/white/black/taupe/salmon/fuschia and you just can't see the difference.

I will have this looked into. I know we were experiencing an issue on some sites where members were not able to remove their images when they were in the draft or preview option. Going to try to upload a screenshot here
